Controversial Pop star, Madonna is set to launch “Rebel Heart” world tour in August, Billboard has learned.
According to , Billboard, UK Pop star Madonna will embark on an international tour in support of her new album “Rebel Heart,” an all-arena trek that will take the artiste to territories she hasn't visited in decades, if ever. A public announcement from tour producer Live Nation is expected today.
The Rebel Heart world tour launches August 29 at American Airlines Arena in Miami, which will begin a run through North American arenas of about 25-30 shows through October, with additional dates likely to be added as certain shows sell out. The artiste will then head to the U.K. and Europe for a run of 20-25 shows beginning in November running through the third week in December.
In early 2016, Madonna will take Rebel Heart to Asia and Australia, with those dates expected to be announced by the end of March. The entire tour is produced by Live Nation's Global Touring division, led by chairman Arthur Fogel. “Rebel Heart” will be Fogel's fifth tour with Madonna, a relationship that has produced more than $1 billion in Boxscore grosses, with 7.8 million tickets sold to 289 shows. That's a remarkable per-show average of $3.8 million gross and 27,227 attendance, enough to make her the top female touring artiset in the world.
